Ivy suffocating trees and Hedge overhanging pavement

Sent to Rutland County Council less than a minute later

The trees that border the cricket ground (on the pavement side of the fence) are being choked to death with ivy. Two in particular are really suffering, the have ivy all the way up into the upper branches. Please could the ivy be cut and removed.

Also, the hedge at the farm park end of Cricket Lawns on the corner with The Vale, has taken up the whole footpath and with covid distancing and both sides of the street unable to be walked on, people are ending up in the road. Please could the hedge be trimmed back.
